Winnipeg Jets Stanley Cup Odds: +5000

Is one other season of mediocrity on its method for the Winnipeg Jets? After falling off a cliff in the course of the season final 12 months, the Jets have introduced in Rick Bowness as head coach and are holding the band again collectively — no less than for another 12 months.

On the draft, they took proper winger Rutger McGroarty 14th general and heart Brad Lambert, as soon as one of many prime prospects within the draft, thirtieth general.

They made no trades, and in free company, their largest transfer was signing Mason Appleton to a three-year deal. Winnipeg additionally misplaced Eric Comrie, their backup goaltender in free company, opting to usher in David Rittich to again up Hellebuyck.

There’s additionally the Pierre-Luc Dubois state of affairs. Rumours had been abound that he was heading to the Montreal Canadiens on the draft, however he’s since signed a $6-million qualifying supply.

Winnipeg completed 9 factors out of a playoff spot final season, so it’s affordable to assume they might make a push for the post-season right here, however I nonetheless have a tough time imagining them getting in.

The Jets reeled all low season after being unable to usher in Barry Trotz as their subsequent bench boss, and I ponder how a lot that might linger because the season approaches. Perhaps it’s the truth that I don’t have a ton of honest in Bowness, or perhaps it’s the very fact it is a flawed Jets staff.

Are we betting on the Jets to win the cup? Laborious cross for me. Regardless of having among the finest goaltenders within the league in Connor Hellebuyck, This staff remains to be full of holes. They lack depth up entrance and their defence is… full of NHL gamers.
